The Decemberists will headline The Academy of Music on April 7th
After a few years pursuing solo projects from books to Black Prairie, Portland-based indie-folk favorites The Decemberists are re-emerging next year with a new album and a U.S. tour. They play Philadelphia on April 7th, and tickets are on sale this week.
The band’s seventh studio album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, will be released via Capitol Records on January 20th; the news was announced last month with the unveiling of a mural depicting the album cover in Brooklyn, along with an acoustic performance by frontman Colin Meloy, which you can watch here via Pitchfork. Their winter / spring tour brings The Decemberists to The Academy of Music in Philadelphia on Tuesday, April 7th and tickets are on sale this Friday, November 21st at noon.
